Whici is exactly why WMS didn't put lamps in the pops in the first place. They knew operators would likely never change burnt out bulbs due to the ramps.
I was gonna say that you can gain access without having to fully remove the ramps. They do need to be repositioned though. You can get away with not having to disconnect the switches.
Nice. I never thought about the ops attitude toward maintenance as an explanation for the lack of lighting, but it makes a lot of sense. I always thought it was theme driven by the darkness of the trunk. Form equals function.
No, I soldered the wires right onto the triangular light board, each of the three lightning bolt lights has a solder pad connected to one side so it's quite easy, and then put all the returns to the common line on the board, works great!! I'm doing another one right now, I'll try to take a pic and post tomorrow.
Nice clean job on the mod. I have always been reluctant to make any lighting mod permanently attached if it would interfere with disassembly, but that is just me.
Did you attach each bumper to the bolt on the opposing position of the clock face, i.e, six with twelve, two with eight, four with ten?
